With the difficult life he’s been through, Dogeon has to learn how to use different guns and rely on his own physical strength to survive.
Dogeon initially refuses to join the Chakho team because he is used to working alone, but he eventually agrees to join after a number of run-ins with the other members. Dogeon is extremely intelligent and responsive, making him one of the “team members” in 7Fates: Chakho.
